About Our Ratings

Pin It



Root:1 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Colchagua Valley
Root:1 refers to the fact that in these vineyards in Chile's Colchagua Valley the grapevines grow on original rootstock. Most grapevines in Europe and the U.S. have been grafted and replanted due to the root louse phylloxera. Original rootstock means deep roots and more complex flavored grapes. Produced by Vina Ventisquero, this Cabernet shows remarkable complexity and character for such a great value wine. The nose has notes of mint, forest floor, dark chocolate and plums. On the palate the fruit emerges with bold notes of black cherry, currants and more plum. Dark chocolate and smoke pick up and linger on the finish. Grab it!

        I was actually surprised how much I enjoyed this Cab. The nose was a little rustic and earthy at first, but showed nice cassis, cedar, smoke and minty notes. It really expanded on the palate dispaying pure milk chocolate, cola and black cherry that hung on through the finish. A very varietally true wine at a friendly price.

          Here is a bold, delicious Cab that will stun you with its value. I guarantee it! I thought it was a $40 wine no joke. It has real unique sweet-smelling aromas. Josh identified it as mint chocolate chip, which is a great call! You won't regret buying this wine which is heavy on flavor and light on your wallet!
